    Looks like a home-made piece, made from West German shelter material. The type I BGS smock has a much more tailored design. I'm sure Steve could elaborate here.

    Raff hit the nail on the head. Fantasy item made from old BGS Zeltbahn. The super rare reversible BGS set is a pull over hooded smock.

    For sure that is BGS camouflage print. I have never seen anything else printed in it except for the BGS Zeltbahn and the small detached hood. The hood is made from very thin fabric, but is so thin the colors show through on the reverse side. The Zeltbahn is not very thick, but of course I do not have your jacket in my hands so I can not do a comparison.

    Your jacket also is using Zeltbahn buttons. That is another indication that it is made form a Zeltbahn.

    The other jacket doesn't look like it is military to me. Almost looks like a sweatshirt type item.

    Yep, that's not military.

    I've seen a few of these made in a similar Czechoslovakian "Sumpftarn", but this doesn't appear to be the same pattern. I think it's an imitation from the commercial market.
